What You'll Get
The dimples on a golf ball help it fly farther with greater accuracy, just as the dimples on a baby help it steal candy from gullible strangers. Pick up other factual golf tips with today's Groupon: for $75, you get three one-hour lessons and nine holes of golf with golf pro Greg Shelnutt at Highland Country Club in LaGrange (a $151 value).
Boasting a degree from Golf Academy of America and an apprentice-certification from PGA, golf guru Greg Shelnutt doles out expert advice during his one-on-one lessons. Shelnutt caters each tee-based tutorial to each student's par-ticular weakness, be it swing, shot selection, or an inane fear of grass ($40 value/one-hour lesson). The practice area at Highland offers an expanse of short- and long-game prep areas, including a driving range, chipping green, and putting green, providing golfers with ample room for play and hole-in-one victory cancans.
After your lesson, flaunt the absence of former flaws during a class-capping nine-hole game with Shelnutt on Highland's Donald Ross–designed course. The normally members-only greens boast picturesque fairways dotted with ponds and peppered with polychromatic blossoms and hauntings by an always overpar bogeyman. As you go club to club, soak up any extraneous tips from Shelnutt while battling for half-course victory and half-volume bragging rights.
